The visitor center is now, and after hiking this I would not recommend it for others. Not a lot to see, and tons of moths along the trail.

Very nice hike. The trails are wide and very well maintained, they traverse though nice wetlands, old growth pines and open pitch pine forest. The trails don’t have signs with names, so It can be a little tricky to navigate the area. Also, the Plymton trail has one section where water has overflowed onto the trail, it is not deep but it can soak a good pair of shoes.

A good well maintained loop for a short hike. Not the best if you’re looking for views, but still worth doing. If you want a longer hike with more to see, check out Tippling Rock as well. It adds a few miles but it’s worth it.

Definitely one of the better loops at Nobscot, the trails are well maintained and well marked. The loop includes the two best features in the reservation; Tippling Rock and Nobscot Hill. Tippling Rock is an open ledge with views all the way to Boston, Nobscot Hill has no views but adds a bit more challenge to the loop. Definitely bring bug spray if you are going in the near future.

The trail itself was in pretty good condition, but the portion that uses the Fisher Loop has lots of downed trees right now. This was very tricky on a bike but I imagine hikers will have it easier. There is also a section of trail by the beaver damn that is overflowing right now. Other than that the loop was really nice. I love these woods and I will make a return trip.

Been hiking here 30 years now and pretty much know the forest. I would suggest a map though. There are lots of lefts of rights so you really have to pay attention. I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn’t for that. Great vistas like Tippling Rock and fire tower cliff offer views of Boston. There’s a bit of history in those woods also including a Small Pox Cemetery.
Depending on the trails you choose some have challenging hills, but others offer a simple stroll with small cabins and flowing streams throughout the woods. Dogs must be leashed if you bring your furry friend. Enjoy !!!

We went during the summer and there was absolutely no blooming flowers. Understandable however it could be at least half price if there are no flowers blooming. I would go again but during spring and if their price drops. 12$$ is a lot for a walk in the woods

I've had many great days at Garden In The Woods. It's a beautiful spot for a walk with lots of beautiful flowers and trees. Be sure to look out for turtles in the pond. If your looking for a fun activity for a sunny day, grab a scavenger hunt sheet at the visitor center and see if you can check off all the flora and fauna while walking to trails.

Easy to walk with a few small challenges (for walking, not 'hiking'). Overall beautiful grounds and varying areas of foliage and nature.

It was a decent easy walk in the woods. I was expecting more flowers in bloom, but maybe it was too early with spring being so late this year. Part of the trails were closed due to a microburst. Big tree uprooted and they needed to clean the area up.

Easy stroll. When you first enter there is a bulletin board that is updated frequently showing what is currently in bloom.
